    tuning box AND remap...?

    i have a 57 reg 1.7 cdti 100... currently running a DTUK box. wondered if its possible to have both a tuning box and a remap running at the same time, and what sort of power gains i could expect, coupled with potential problems?

    thanks

    Simple answer.. Engine managment goes nuts and possible damage to your engine!

    Basically a DTUK box and remap are the same and give similar effects to the engine such as adjusting boost on the turbo and the fuelling.. so basically a remap will take the car to its near maximum then the tuning box will push it too far.

    Want my advice.. do one or the other..

    The Box only alters the common rail fuel pressure.

    A remap doesn't as it adjusts the boost and doesn't ater the fuel pressure. Graphs as recorded through my diagnostics, gears 1-4.

    Sport on is with the EDS remap.


    Common rail pressure with eds map on/off


    In theory you could do both, I certainly wouldn't as it would stress the car too much.
